Screwed in Texas!
I have always paid my child support. After my divorce my ex-wife moved in and lived with a child support attorney by the name of Steve Sinkin in San Antonio Texas. After I paid my child support to the private agency she hired Mr. Sinkin sued me for then $165,000.00 which he stated was for "interest". I hired an attorney Dan Rutherford who represented me but never responded to Mr. Sinkin's notices and a judgement was rendered against me. Mr. Rutherford in court admitted he was responsible but never paid up or made it right. A hearing was set and Mr. Sinkin was notified but never showed up for the hearing so Judge Martha Tanner dismissed the whole case. One week later Mr. Sinkin showed up with the noticed and you could tell he smudged and changed the date on his court notice. I demanded that he be prosecuted for fraud and forgery of a court document. My attorney declined and everyone told me it would only harm his career as an attorney - NOTHING was done! So Mr. Sinkin subpoeaned my employer into court then I was fired from my job. I hired another attorney to sue Dan Rutherford - NOTHING was done! I moved out of state due to me not being able to find work after being fired from several jobs over this. Mr. Sinkin tracked me down and had me fired for several other jobs so I had my ex-wife file a satisfaction of judgement that I did not owe any child support or interest. I also declared bankruptcy and everything was DISCHARGED. Mr. Sinkin disputed this but never showed up as everyone is supposed to that disputes a debt. Therefore everything was discharged. Mr. Sinkin still garnishes 50% of everything he can. The Texas State Attorney General has attempted to send me money Steve Sinkin has taken (so far $6000.00) Mr. Sinkin has garnished more than $60,000.00 from me!! The Texas State Attorney General has filed motion after motion in court stating I DO NOT OWE CHILD SUPPORT (my two "children" are 32 and 34 years of age!) and Mr. Sinkin's figures are ALL WRONG!! Steve Sinkin even told one of my attorneys that he was going to have me arrested and they will find me "swinging" in my cell so I better have good life insurance. I even reported Mr. Sinkin to the Texas State Bar. They told me he has done nothing wrong! So that is justice in this country, a "sham". I am a military veteran and former law enforcement officer. This is entirely a DISGRACE to our legal and justice system. If you want to know more just call the Texas State Attorney General they have all of the records and so do I!
